Waterstones Says

As entertaining as he is divisive, ardent Leaver Rod Liddle was never going to stay quiet about his views on the charade of Brexit. A withering attack on all whom the author perceives as having sabotaged our withdrawal from the EU, The Great Betrayal is contentious, controversial and impassioned reading.

'Betcha we don't leave.' I wrote that on the evening of 24 June 2016, once the euphoria had passed. A lot of us leavers, despite being elderly and thick, knew. The establishment wouldn't let it happen.

Quite how the establishment stopped us from leaving the European Union, though, we could never have guessed. A mandate which became a process and resulted in the UK being the laughing stock of the world. We might have guessed at the relentless howls of outrage from that extreme block of transgressed remainers, the hostility of the House of Commons, the civil service and the BBC. That was a given, and it all played its part. But beyond our imagination was the readiness of politicians to ignore or subvert the vote, the sheer ineptitude of those charged with negotiating our withdrawal, the spite of the EU and the intercession of that usual thing, events.

The Great Betrayal tells the story of a failed Brexit and a betrayal of the British people, drawn from interviews with those at the very centre of what became, in the end, a surreal charade.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A valuable volume * The Times *
The book is exactly what you would expect from Liddle. It is a no-holds barred account that literally throws readers into the lagoons of exasperation, anger and disillusionment that stretch across Leave Land. It is not a book that remainers will enjoy, but in our polarised times it is definitely one they ought to read * Sunday Times *
Engaging . . . If you're a fan of the Liddle school of political invective, you'll love this book -- Harry Mount * Spectator *

“Gender fluidity and climate change.....”

.....thankfully have nothing to do with this blisteringly perceptive and funny polemic as to how an anti-democratic cabal collaborated to negate the ‘people’s vote’ and leave the EU.
Perhaps it would have more reviews... More

“A Great read.”

Very funny and insightful into not just the reasons why the 17.4 Million have had their vote overturned but also the very reasons people voted to leave, both left and right. Liddle brilliantly emphases the struggle... More
